I'm going to pick on one that really stands out as not a reliable ride which was a 1980 Suzuki GS-850, had bad feeling about it when I notice that for what ever reason it would churn the final drive oil into grease.

That and one day while changing the oil I noticed a slip pin come out with the rest of the oil so that was my trade in notice.

Every other bike I've owned in 35 years has been outstanding.

'74 Honda CB360
'80 Suzuki DR 400 (dirt bike)
'80 Kawasaki KZ 650
'77 Harley Superglide
'74 Harley Sportster
'83 Kawasaki KZ 650
'01 and '05 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R (presently own)

The ZRX's are the best bikes I've owned. Have been very reliable. I just turned 80k on the '01

The Harley's were terrible. They were from the AMF years. How can a company that makes bowling balls make bikes? The Superglide leaked oil all the time and had rear brake issues. The Sportster had chronic electrical problems. It shifted on the right. I could never get the hang of that.

I never kept the other ones long enough to have any problems. The one I wish I still had was the '80 KZ 650. I loved that bike. It looked so cool. I sold it and bought the Superglide. What an idiot.
